50 startups to hire at ISB job fair

A clutch of top 50 startups in Hyderabad hope to tap better talent from top B-schools, in a job fair, to be held at the Indian School of Business.

“Hiring is a challenging task for any company and especially for startups. They would probably have to invest a couple of months and 100 times more money to achieve the same result with any recruitment firm,” said Amit Singh, director, Headstart Network Foundation. Headstart is organising the event along with TiE (The Indus Entrepreneurs), IIIT and the Indian School of Business. Startups from industries like software, retail, financial services, healthcare and education have been looking at hiring from top management schools. Most of these schools also individually hold startup placements ahead of the main placements.

“On one hand in Hyderabad we have promising engineering graduates and on the other hand, there are startups with innovative ideas looking for such talent. ‘Headstart Higher’ will be an ideal platform to bring together both and this will certainly further augment the growth of Startups in Hyderabad,” said Ramesh Loganathan, VP (products) & Centre Head, Progress Software, co-founder Headstart. Similar events by Headtstart had taken place earlier in cities like Delhi and Mumbai, where around 130 startups participated.
